Crispy SBD..The boys wind down the fall tour and are still on it from a hot summer tour..85 has such a distinct sound and energy to it and this show oozes with it~~Jerry is shredding from gate and I also hold this show up there in my top 5 for the year Springfield 3-25, Frost 4-28, Saratoga 6-27, Merriweather 6-30, Kiaser 11-21~~So Give It a whirl>Forever Grateful>Forever Dead~!!!!!!!

Subject: One of the top 4 in 85; Recording literally as good as it gets.
About the only way it wouldn't be a 5 star is because it was from 1985 as opposed to 68-74.

As far as shows from 1985 go, it is pretty much as good as they get. The best shows from 85 were Nassau 3/27/85, Greek 6/16/85, Merriweather 6/30/85, and this one Fox, Atlanta 10/29/85.

If anyone knows a better Friend of the Devil, please point me to it. After a bit of early flubbing, Crazy Fingers gets sublime.

The main problem with most 1985 shows is that they had Brent way, way too high in the mix for my taste. Generally I thought they were playing pretty well and they had some definite inspired moments that had been lacking overall in 1984.

But, despite the sub-optimal mix, this recording is just exquisite. And getting a really hot show of this quality--wow.

I had a copy of this particular recording that I got shortly after it came out. I treasured it--not many were floating around back then that even came close to this kind of fidelity. One giant aural orgasm.

It is incredible to have it available over the internet.

Many thanks to Dr. Paul Scotton, Joani Walker, and Charlie Miller--Grateful Dead connoisseur and superhero-- for their generosity in making this and countess other primo recordings available.

Subject: huh?
to each his own but how is this show -- performance and recording -- not 5-stars? and if this show isn't 5-stars then what is?!

first set is cut short due to some technical problems.

second set is some good good, wild wild stuff...

best show of '85 and one of the tops of the entire decade.

Subject: A sweet example of 85' majick
I am a huge fan of 85', as I think it was the energy of the 20th anniversary that carried them and the audiance to new realizations, atleast it was ture for me.

The Fox Theatres were also special venues for the Boys. This was one the few places I regret not having seen them perform.

This is a nice recording and fine example of all three axis, band, space and time.
